    I'm in Norway right now, painting in Odd Nerdrum's studio, it's a quite cool place!
    What you see here is a bunch of oil paint tubes belonging to the Maestro.
    And here is a view of the studio - actually it's 3 different studios he paints in. Wish I had that much space! XD

    Thank you, George and Fetsch

    here's a lil update. Portrait of a co-student, while Odd Nerdrum was painting a portrait of her, amidst the glaring summer sun (That's why she is squinting). It's quite an experience to watch the Maestro paint.

    New finished digital painting, it's the Revelation of John, from the last chapter of the New Testament...

    And a bunch of new sketchbook pages, I really need to improve my figure drawings. (sorry for the bad photo quality - scanner wasn't working)
    I often hear people saying that my figures lack anatomical definition. As if they were blow-up dolls, having no muscle or bone beneath.
    They're right, of course, and I'm getting better... I think the critique also means that I've finally mastered the most basic human proportions. Learning the underlying structure is the obvious next step and challenge.

    For whatever weird reason, the scanner is working. So, more sketchbook pages. Copied after old master paintings, because I need to draw moar figures and anatomy and bodyparts. Drawing = serious business.

    Fun with charcoal!
    The paper looks old, but is "fake". I just made it look old and used, coloring it with tea.

    Sketch painted in oils, from imagination. Should have given the top more space, but it's too late for that now, so nevermind. I'm still trying to gain better control of the medium.

    Damn, painting with Nerdrum himself.. wicked! How many people are there? Only you? This looks really nice, like a scan from an old (.) Michelangelo sketchbook or something like that.. nice.

    Copying from this anatomy book. The text is a pain to read, but it has some nice images.

    Exercise with oil paints, because I finally want to have some control over the medium, instead of the other way around. Painted without model or ref, oil on canvas, A4 size.

    I have to say I like your traditional work a lot better than your digital sketches, this because they tend to get really smooth. I saw one portrait you did with rough bristle brushes and that worked really well - but the smooth and soft brushes you use for the rest of your work lack texture and emotion, something more visible in your traditional work. Great SB tho, I've been following your work on DA as well =)

    I really have no other crits than to watch your eyes (They sometimes look too large or unfocused or a little wonky.) But, your skin paintery skills make me envious. Keep on rockin'.

    Thank you Crahhz! Is that Titus in your avatar? *__* I'm a total Rembrandt fangirl.

    Featheredface, thanks! I'll be watching those eyes! Like in these new sketches.

    And that's a still life, oil on canvas, with a mummified sheep's head. Took me about 3-4 hours - I definitely didn't try as hard as in Angel school, but better than nothing!

    Now I've been at Nerdrum's studio in Norway for a month, will go back home tomorrow. I SO look forward to seeing my family and my boyfriend!

    Hi Maidith,

    just had a browse through your entire thread. There is huge impovements especially in your faces. Your figures are really good too. Though your technical skills in your first few pages are really good, your latest ones show a lot more flow and life in them.
    Very inspiring.

    I watch you on deviantART but I never saw your sketchbook here. It's amazing. I love your figure drawings and your hand studies are very lovely.

    I love the expressions on their face. My only comment is she's holding the axe a bit awkard.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Gosh, Maidith, your progress is incredible! Its really unbelievable to look at, i can only hope i can come close to traveling the distance you've come in the past few years.
    And to be at Angel Academy! It must be amazing, I can't even imagine.

    I was hoping maybe you can answer a question or two i have about the school? I am still in highschool myself, but I'm curious if you could tell me - are there any students at the school who have gone there directly to Angel Academy out of highschool? I'm still young enough that i have time before i graduate to improve (hopefully drastically), and I'm wondering if you have any advice as to whether or not it would be a good idea to consider going there after my final year of highschool. I'm afraid I don't know enough about AAA to understand if this is a common practice..?

    I love checking your sketchbook.. please, keep posting this much, it truly inspires me to work hard even when i am feeling like sleeping And thank you for the information you've already shared about Angel Academy.. I've gone through your SB from page one tonight, and it's been extremely helpful and inspiring for me. Thanks so much!

    Thanks so much everyone!
    No real update now, but I thought I'd just answer Marlee's question publicly here, since I get questiosn like these so often...

    are there any students at the school who have gone there directly to Angel Academy out of highschool?
    Yes, me. Maybe some others too, but I dunno.
    You don't have to be super skilled to go there (quote from website: "Application is open to all: there are no restrictions on age or experience.") That's because they're teaching not art, just skills. methods and technique. Everyone can learn these, like bicycling and grammar. You can APPLY them to make art, but they don't teach "art" itself. The classes aren't about anything like creativity or self-expression. Don't expect "artistic freedom" there. (These things, in my humble opionion, cannot be taught anyway). The school is all about technique and craft, not "art". Be aware of this before you apply.
    I think their website should emphasize that point even more.

    But as said, age doesn't matter. The youngest student here started at 15, she is living in Florence together with her mom during the trimesters.
    How I wish I could have been here at that age!!!

    Thank you hücumcedi

    Finally got a halfway good image of the oil painting I did at Angel Academy last term. Painted from the live model, oil on canvas, 50x70cm, several hours/days.

    For the 2nd still life painting at Angel Academy, students are required to make (and photograph) a gazillion different still life compositions until they find one that is perfect. The teacher gives feedback along the way so I learnt quite a bit about composition...

    These aren't all the photos I've made, just some of the better ones.
    Fortunately I've found the "perfect" setup now which I'm painting currently

    Taken with my good ole Pentax Optio 33L
